How Limb Lengthening Surgery Works – Yale Medicine Explains

Here at Orthofix, we know that the process of bone healing is remarkable. So does the Yale School of Medicine, and in this presentation, Dr. David Frumberg, assistant professor of orthopedics and rehabilitation, discusses how limb length differences can lead to other problems and how limb-lengthening surgery can “harness the biological power of the bone to heal.”

With the most comprehensive portfolio of limb reconstruction products, Orthofix addresses the most challenging orthopedic conditions of adult patients, including bone deformity and limb lengthening procedures. In this video, you’ll see our Fitbone® intramedullary limb-lengthening system used by Yale’s expert team. Since being launched in 1997, this innovative treatment has grown into a global success story with several thousand successful implants.
